Lucy Stevens in 'Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel'

About

Acclaimed one-woman play with music that weaves the life and writing of Virginia Woolf with songs by British women composers who were Woolf's contemporaries. Revealing Virginia's troubled childhood, her views on literature, the Bloomsbury group and the challenges women artists face. This fascinating evening is performed by gifted actor-singer Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus.

"An extraordinary evening … like floating on top of a wave – joyous one moment and dashed onto the pebbles the next. We felt drawn into [Virginia Woolf's] stream of consciousness – sometimes playful, sometimes heart-rending." — Theatre Royal Winchester

With a 30-minute post-show discussion about the campaign to erect a statue of Virginia Woolf in Richmond which is slated for 2022.

Lucy Stevens is an actor, classical singer and theatre-maker. She studied acting at Rose Bruford College of Speech & Drama and voice at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama. Lucy creates new small-scale theatre productions in which music, song and the spoken word weave seamlessly through text drawn from autobiographical writings. Lucy and pianist Elizabeth Marcus, have toured Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel, Ethel Smyth: Grasp the Nettle and Kathleen Ferrier Whattalife! throughout the UK and internationally, as well as featured on BBC 2, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4. In 2020 Lucy recorded 'Dame Ethel Smyth - Songs and Ballads' with Elizabeth Marcus and the Berkeley Ensemble conducted by Odaline de la Martinez for Somm Recordings.
